Who\'s still riding?

We've been getting some pretty good weather here in South Western Ontario. Ive been using the bike everyday for school and work. How late do you guys usually keep the bikes out for? till the snow flys? I think I might crack out the long johns soon though! hahahaha

Re: Who\'s still riding?

i didnt plan on it.. i went to work and it was dry... snow was on the road when i got off and i just took it easy on the way home instead of asking for a ride. probably not the smartest thing ya... but :shrug: i made it.

Re: Who\'s still riding?

I'm still riding as often as I can. It's been really nice for the last couple of weeks. I'm not planning to stop until it snows and the roads are salted.

Ride on Brothas!!

Re: Who\'s still riding?

here in richmond va its 77 right now. if only i wasnt poor and had the money to put in the tank to ride. once the money is back into effect, i'll ride until its too cold. we stop when it's in the 40's. we are sissys i guess compared to some of you. lots of respect to those who can do it though.

To convert Fahrenheit to Celsius, subtract 32 degrees and divide by 1.8

That's 4 and a half Celsius. I'd ride if it were sunny. No question.

Re: Who\'s still riding?

Went for a ride a couple of days ago, was around 9 celsius. We had no snow or freezing roads yet so no sand or salt on the roads. As long as they are clear and above about 5 celsius I'll take the odd short ride here and there. I've had bikes out before in sub zero temps but it just isn't pleasant and I'd rather put the miles on by enjoying them since I have a vehicle(truck) to get around.

Was out yesterday for about 130 Km, and that will be it for the year I am sure.
